Re: A Very Splendid Otome Game [PPHS Jam]

This premise is so silly that this game honestly should have been just ridiculous... So how in the world did you guys manage to make it so GOOD? You know I liked it from my comments on Twitter, but honestly I expected this to be just a silly little game with cute art that I was going to sit down and...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

^It looks like he can think RenO games can be good. Just look at his reviews from last year, he had praise for quite a few of them. (But I get what you mean about a player reading it. Though not every review is going to be positive, at least these can be helpful to us.) Slightly off this topic now I...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

((I LIED AND I AM HORRIBLE FOR IT)) Critiquing critics, could be a new prospect! But in all seriousness, I don't think it's possible to completely match another person's taste so that is understandable. ... I don't know if I have ever seen Reddit feedback. I should probably take a look. In other new...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

I don't have a problem with negative reviewers, but again, my tastes don't match with his at all. All in all, it comes down the fact it's one person, and like I've said before, I never put all my faith in a single reviewer when it comes to whether or not I play a game. Yes, I have admit my tastes d...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

Personally I think it is better to release a bad game, learn from it, and then improve and continue to make better games than never release one at all. But that's just me. Bad is also HIGHLY subjective. Some people judge bad on overall quality. Some people judge bad by one thing, like the visuals, A...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

There's not a game or VN or piece of art in the world that doesn't have flaws. 100% correct. Nothing will ever be flawless, it's theoretically impossible. And even if majority can find no flaws in something, someone else will because they may be looking at it different. If you read the reviews disp...

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

To weigh in on this: Personally I do think he's a bit harsh in his reviews, but I wouldn't just brush off what he says as "well, he just hates EVNs". Deji is right when she says he more or less gives his opinion on things, this is especially true when it comes to him judging the story, but someone's...

Re: How do you choose name for main character?

Since you two brought up TV Tropes, I suggest looking through "Aerith and Bob". http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AerithAndBob In most cases, names that stick just out a bit aren't really a problem. For example it wouldn't be too jarring to have a group of high schoolers names John, Mark, A...

Re: How do you choose name for main character?

Sometimes a name just jumps out at me from the start and I have no problem keeping that on the character. But sometimes it becomes difficult. Names can change in the middle of writing and sometimes I have to put in a placeholder because nothing comes up. Other times I keep the original name that was...

Re: Tricross [Fantasy.Action.Adventure.Romance.GxB?]

Your gorgeous artwork and a nostalgic (for me) premise just got my attention! There may not be much here right now, but I'll keep an eye on this to see where it goes in the future.

Re: Get that thing off your chest... Now...

Sometimes I forget my father is more than a little bit racist. But that's ok. He makes that VERY clear whenever he deems necessary. Like every single time we mention any other culture. EVER. I wish I could call him out or attempt to explain to him why what he says can be insulting (and, for that mat...

Re: The Rain Factory [Cyberpunk] [Episodic] [Western Art]

Now that I have seen her in that style I have to lean toward it. It DEFINITELY looks much more unique and I would love to play a game in this style.

Re: The Rain Factory [Cyberpunk] [Episodic] [Western Art]

This is a wall of text if I have ever seen one... but it is one INTERESTING wall of text. This has a lot of potential behind it and I would LOVE to see where this goes. As for the art: I love the idea of using Western art, I'm always up for a change in the styles I see. The first sketch looks great,...

Re: Love at the Laundromat [GxB][Romance, Comedy, Drama]

I hate not being able to get on for days at a time... look at what I missed! I love everything in this new update. Normally I don't like floating UI for dates and the like, but this one isn't quite as distracting as I normally find. I would definitely play with that in the corner, no problem. The en...
